Default Side Mirror Swap. Please Help

Does anyone know if it is possible/reasonable to swap out the side mirrors of a Ford Ranger 2001 XLT with the mirrors found on the 06 Rangers? The ones that are black on the bottom and a different color on the top... I want mine white on top so they are the same color as the truck.

Here is a link to what I am talking about:

Thanks!

Yes

you need to cut the little nub off the 06 mirror to fit into the hole of the door.

I pretty much just showed you pictures how to do it. Other then that it is just removing the mirror and putting new mirror on.

Actually, I have a 2005 FX4, with power mirrors and I just bought the newer style mirrors found on the 2006+ and the connection is different. Can anyone explain this?

Yes they are different.

You gotta splice the wires together for the corresponding function. using the 05's connector.

----------

According to my manuals the 05 and 06 wire colors are the same.

Here is a picture of the 2005 mirror wire diagram.
